There’s plenty of blame to go around for the disappointing results of the last week’s election: the current post-Covid rules (or lack thereof) for voting, mismanaged ballot collection and counting, Republican leadership, and American voters. Naturally, all of these factors played a role in helping a party that has failed on multiple fronts to stay securely in power.

However, one major reason for Democrats winning was Gen Z voters coming out in large numbers to vote for them — though this was not quite as big a reason as Democrats believe. This cohort was responsible for electing cognitively impaired man-child John Fetterman and incompetent shrew Kathy Hochul as well as reelecting Covid tyrant Gretchen Whitmer. Less unsurprisingly, they’re also responsible for supporting the legalization of marijuana and expanding abortion.

Why did these young people feel motivated enough to go and vote against their interests and keep the country on a downward trajectory? Do they like rising crime, high inflation, mass illegal immigration, homeless encampments, high gas prices, and a shrinking economy? Did they really think Biden would pay off their student loans? Are they just brainwashed zombies who comply with the narratives of TikTok?

Based on my extensive experience as an English teacher, I would say that yes, the average Gen Z American is largely indifferent to important issues that affect the country, even ones that affect their general quality of life. Every day, I witness their lack of reasoning skills and personal drive. This in turn causes them to be disturbingly introverted and handle most of their interactions with people through social media. Many have no real community or deep-seated beliefs and act more on feelings than principle.

Instead, they spend most of their waking life on the internet, consuming mindless content and dreaming up fake personas for themselves. And as a result, they are largely immaturelonely, and neurotic.

This much is argued by writer and former English professor Mark Bauerlein, who writes that Gen Z, “will be the most conformist cohort in American history, already favoring cancellation more than any other age group, and politics will be a primary mode of grouping.” This generation is told what to think by various online influencers, and they passively comply. Because of screen addiction, they will never learn to think or act for themselves, nor will they ever really want to.

The propagandizing effect of heavy social media usage cannot be overstated. For young people, nearly every narrative and social phenomenon now originate from the internet. This means that it’s the dumb and disturbed “influencers” online, not parents or teachers, informing this next generation about politics, economics, and culture. And the algorithms of popular social media sites are designed to curate and amplify this same defective messaging a million times over. The subversive effect on people with still-developing frontal cortexes is not all that different from the “Ludivico technique” in “A Clockwork Orange” in which criminals are forcibly bombarded with images and music in order to condition them against misconduct.

Why is Gen Z so glued to their screens? Two friends and fellow teacher-writers Jeremy Adams and Shane Trotter have examined this question in depth. In his book “Hollowed Out,” Adams argues how the breakdown of family, schools, and the culture at large has left today’s young people morally and intellectually adrift: Not working? Not supporting oneself? Playing video games all day on somebody else’s dime? Not feeling a crumb of shame about it — even describing such a state as happy? That is hollowness.

The many norms and standards (these things that would “fill in” a person) that used to be reinforced by their parents, pastors, teachers, politicians, entertainers, and artists simply aren’t anymore. Should it surprise people that the kids carelessly withdraw from the world and play on their phones?

In Trotter’s book “Setting the Bar,” he attributes the failures of Gen Z to low standards and a permissive parenting culture that coddles kids:

The typical modern youth experience — from the school environment, to the parenting norms, to the broader cultural value structure — is ingraining limiting beliefs and destructive habits that leave our kids ill-equipped for the challenges that lie ahead of them.

No one challenges the kids, so they grow up soft and slow, making them the perfect sheep to be manipulated en masse.

Adams and Trotter demonstrate how circumstances have turned many Zoomers into sad, confused individuals doomed to have an impoverished adulthood. Instead of receiving lessons on independence, critical thinking, and disciplined living, too many of them are protected from all forms of adversity and given an iPad to keep them pacified. This treatment insulates them so much from reality that they never come to know themselves and are bored to the point of despair.

Ironically, understanding this dark reality may be the key to generational reform. True, it might be easy to agree with Bauerlein that Gen Z is hopeless and will probably bring the rest of the nation down with them, but this theory assumes that the Gen Z lifestyle is actually sustainable. The students in my classes all share a natural desire to be better people. I do what I can to offer them a way out; that is, I talk to them and push them to do more. At first, they resist and resort to their phone for comfort but this attitude changes when they feel the profound joy of actually learning and accomplishing something. 

Conservatives can shake their heads at today’s young adults refusing to grow up, or they can actually try to reach these kids. It’s not like they want to be lonely, ignorant, or “neurodivergent.” And most, if they’re being honest, don’t want to be slaves to their smartphones. Rather, like everyone else, they want goodness, beauty, and truth. They want loving relationships, authentic experiences, and some degree of mastery over their emotions and impulses. Above all, they want meaning.

If they have those things, then they will stop voting for corrupt mediocrities and suicidal social policies. More importantly, they will stop wasting away their lives on frivolity and enjoy a fruitful and fulfilling adulthood. Although election results are technically a political matter, what they reveal about voters is a cultural and moral one. We should treat this midterm as the Gen Z cry for help. It’s time for us to go out and save them.

Teachers Union Publishes Instruction Manual from Hell – Here’s the Sick How-to Guide


Reported by Mike Landry | August 5, 2021

Read more at https://www.westernjournal.com/teachers-union-publishes-instruction-manual-sick-guide/

Prepare to be patted on the head.

And listen for the “Tsk, tsk, you don’t really understand what we’re about, dear.” That’s how it will be in Minnesota and probably elsewhere if a leftist teachers union can spread its ideas on how to respond to its promotion of critical race theory.

Before reading the following, you might want to take a deep breath and exhale or whatever it is you do to reduce stress. You might have to do that after reading it, too.

Education Minnesota is trying to counter growing community pushback against CRT around the state, so it has published a guide on how teachers should respond, a copy of which was obtained by Powerline and publicized by Minnesota’s Alpha News. First of all, the union tells teachers not to call what they’re teaching critical race theory. They know parents are catching on. And the guide presents buckets of mush designed to obscure the issue and talk down to critics.

It’s a classic snow job using the special language of “educanto,” a term coined by the late Paul Greenberg, public school critic and Pulitzer Prize-winning Arkansas newspaper editor. Education Minnesota tells teachers that when asked why they teach kids that all white people are racist, they should give the following response:

“First off, I’m thrilled you’re taking such a deep interest in how and what our kids are taught, a conversation that I feel is long overdue.

“What I know most Americans believe is that we expect our students — whatever their color or background — to be able to learn hard truths and handle honest history and civics.”

May I pat your head?

“I believe in children’s potential to meet new challenges and have an honest reckoning, and when we try to edit and distort our history, we are doing them, and our future, a disservice. My loyalty is to children and who and what they can become.”

That’s how teachers should respond to your question about their “evil white people” push. And, of course, as the left always says: It’s for the children.

Education Minnesota does more than purr in its teacher voice. In its guide for its union members, it provides does some hard-knuckle political messaging against CRT critics by presenting “Key Concepts for Responding.”

Here are excerpts:

  • “Seize the moral high ground and engage on our terms. With attention on education, let’s talk about the teaching and curricula we support and communicate how it benefits all students.”
  • “Ascribe motivations to the opposition. Instead of reflexively repeating the opposition’s claims to dispel them (e.g. ‘we are not teaching grade schoolers about XYZ’) talk about why they’re attacking standards, equity and classroom educators.”
  • “Bring the conversation back to what we want. Don’t stay on defense.”
  • “Avoid the academic term ‘critical race theory. This phrase, unfamiliar to most audiences, has been redefined by the political right as an all-purpose racial dog whistle. Talk instead about the more honest and more complete education our students deserve.”
  • “[I]t is so disappointing to see that a few billionaires, and the promoters and talking heads they pay for, have launched a national campaign to mislead Americans about the lessons educators teach about history, culture, gender and politics.”
  • “Once again, they’re trying to distract and divide us so we don’t demand the richest 1 percent and the largest corporations pay what they owe for what our communities need, like affordable health care for all.”

Leftist educators try to hide what they’re teaching, but word is getting out. The Center for the American Experiment has been monitoring CRT in Minnesota and produced a video noting instances of it. It found that in Burnsville, fourth-graders were reading a book that said police officers were “mean to black people but nice to white people” and deliberately shot black men.

  • The video cited officials in the Minneapolis suburb of Hopkins as saying school operations were built on white supremacy values of logic, linear thinking, perfectionism, objectivity and  “requiring black students to turn in assignments on time.” Letter grades are gone since they are part of “a dominant white culture.”
  • White Bear Lake sixth-graders were divided into groups based on race, sex, religion and place of birth and told to address issues of oppression and privilege.
  • Edina kindergarteners through second-graders did an exercise on how to identify themselves by their skin color. Kindergarten through second grade!
  • St. Louis Park scrapped the gifted and talented program, opening it to everyone and focusing on “anti-racist talent development.”
  • Minnesota teachers are taking anti-racism training, which, in effect, advocates new forms of racial discrimination, according to the video.

It’s not known if Minnesota schoolchildren are learning, like first- and second-graders in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, that “whiteness is a bad deal” and that if you are white, you essentially are a devil oppressing people of color, as reported Wednesday in a RealClear Policy piece that included shocking curriculum photos.

Education Minnesota defines CRT as “an academic framework that is more than 40 years old and is centered on the idea that racism is systemic, not just a product of individual bias or prejudice, and embedded in our policies legal structure.”

Indeed, CRT came from legal theorists during the 1970s and ’80s. The problem is it left the campus, and no matter how groups like Education Minnesota try to hide it, it is gumming up primary and secondary education.

Victor Davis Hanson, a classicist scholar and social commentator whose gravitas stems from also having been a farmer, points out a problem with woke nonsense being dreamed up on the college campus. College professors, Hansen has said, were once like court jesters of old. They could say all kinds of crazy things and no one was offended, not even the king, because everyone knew professors, like jesters, had no real power. Now, according to Hansen, crazy ideas have escaped the campus and are setting public policy.

It’s part of corporate wokeness, too.

Classic Marxism may have hit some resistance since its call for dividing people by income and class could be hindered by the relative affluence of most of the U.S. population, at least by world standards. But for sure, today’s Marxists are focused on dividing by race and gender to class. And critical race theory fits right in.

There’s a lot to process here: lying teachers, overt racism, emotional oppression upon very young children. You might want to take that deep breath.

Teen Girl Assaulted By Teacher For Wearing “Women For Trump” Pin


Posted By  |

How far are liberals willing to go to try and silence Trump supporters? Honestly, it looks like there is nothing that is truly off limits. Such is the case with a high school student in Michigan.

Sadie Earegood said that she was assaulted by her teacher after she declined to remove a pin from her shirt that said “Women For Trump”. The teacher said that he didn’t like the pin so he wanted her to take it off. When she refused that’s when he came after her.

According to The Daily Wire,

Kato allegedly told the girl he didn’t like her pin. “He’s talking about the ‘Women for Trump’ pin and I said, ‘that’s fine you don’t have to like it, we can have our opinions,’” she recalled.

“He grabbed [the pin] and I pulled, I tried to push his hand away and he grabbed my shoulder,” the high school junior explained. “(He) just kind of put his hand there, and then he started pulling more and more and I just started backing up.”

“I was really shocked that a teacher, especially, would do that,” Earegood said.

Mr. Kato then allegedly put the “Women for Trump” pin upside down on his own shirt, “stating that it ‘belonged that way,’” the news report said.

The essence of what this teacher is conveying is that it’s okay to assault someone if you don’t like the same presidential candidate as I do.

I’m going to keep saying this each and every time I see a story like this: Parents, if you still have children in public school, it is time to pull them out and either homeschool or private school them. They are being indoctrinated. Fortunately, this young lady seems grounded on the right side, but that’s not the case for most.

Conservative Teacher Punished for Praising Trump on Her Facebook Page


waving flag disclaimerAuthored By Dave Jolly February 23, 2017

veronica fleming

‘Selective allowable discrimination’ is alive and well in America’s public school system. Liberal teachers literally get away with all kinds of highly questionable and unethical things, but let a conservative teacher express their views on their own private social media pages and they are punished for exercising their First Amendment rights.

Take for instance the case of teacher Michael Garrison and a former student. CJ Parsons is a black conservative and when he was 12-years-old, he produced a You Tube video that ripped Barack Obama apart for his views on ISIS and America.

“C.J. looked into the camera and stated: ‘President Obama – you don’t love America. If you really did love America, you would call ISIS what it really is – an assault on Christianity – an assault on America and a downright hate for the American values our country holds – of freedom of speech – freedom of religion and everything our country stands for’.”

“Within three days the video had gone viral, garnering 540,000 views and as of today, it has over 2.1 million. That and other videos by the young man have gained him celebrity status, as he’s met Ted Cruz, been on Fox’s “The Kelly File” as well as Sean Hannity’s show. Oh, and also being blocked on our child-president, Barack Obama’s Twitter page…”

Sadly, Parson’s received a lot of hate mail for his video as not everyone was supportive of him for his stand in defending America.

“It seems one of C.J.’s former teachers, Michael Garrison, told students that black conservative activist student C.J. Pearson thinks he’s ‘not worth saving in a fire,’ and he ‘hates him’.”radical-leftist-hater

The last I heard, nothing was done to Garrison for his harsh statement about his former student.

Meet Dana Dusbiber, an English teacher at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, California. She has decided to not teach her English students anything about the most famous English author of all time, William Shakespeare. Even though studying Shakespeare is a requirement for high school in the Common Core English Language Arts standards, Dusbiber says she will not teach any Shakespeare to her students because she is black and many of her students are black.

Dusbiber defended her stance in a letter she sent to The Washington Post, stating:

“I am a high school English teacher. I am not supposed to dislike Shakespeare. But I do. And not only do I dislike Shakespeare because of my own personal disinterest in reading stories written in an early form of the English language that I cannot always easily navigate, but also because there is a WORLD of really exciting literature out there that better speaks to the needs of my very ethnically-diverse and wonderfully curious modern-day students…”

“What I worry about is that as long as we continue to cling to ONE (white) MAN’S view of life as he lived it so long ago, we (perhaps unwittingly) promote the notion that other cultural perspectives are less important. In the 25 years that I have been a secondary teacher, I have heard countless times, from respected teachers (mostly white), that they will ALWAYS teach Shakespeare, because our students need Shakespeare and his teachings on the human condition.

“So, I ask, why not teach the oral tradition out of Africa, which includes an equally relevant commentary on human behavior? Why not teach translations of early writings or oral storytelling from Latin America or Southeast Asia other parts of the world? Many, many of our students come from these languages and traditions. Why do our students not deserve to study these ‘other’ literatures with equal time and value? And if time is the issue in our classrooms, perhaps we no longer have the time to study the Western canon that so many of us know and hold dear.”radical-leftist-hater

The last I knew, Dusbiber was not disciplined for forcing her racist views on her students. These are just a few of the instances where liberal teachers have allowed their personal agendas to infiltrate into their classrooms and influence their teaching and nothing is done to stop them.

But what happens to a conservative teacher who on their own time, expresses their personal opinion on their own social media page?

Meet Veronica Fleming:

“Parkside Elementary School computer lab instructor Veronica Fleming linked to a Chicago Tribune story about the nationwide protest and offered her take on the situation.’

“‘The funny part about immigrants staying home is the rest of us who pay for them are here at work like we’ve always been. Looks like less mouths to feed today. Have fun while you still can. So glad to hear about massive deportation. Let’s make America great again. Thanks Donald Trump!’”

“Collier County Public Schools spokesman Greg Turchetta told the Naples Daily News Fleming’s post didn’t sit well with parents of students at Parkside Elementary, 96 percent of which are minorities…”

“Juanita Perez, an immigrant mother of two, told NBC 2 she was ‘offended’ by Fleming’s online comments.”

“‘My feelings are hurt for our kids,’ she said. ‘I couldn’t even believe it. How could a teacher speak like that?’”radical-leftist-hater

Due to the complaints immigrant parents who have blindly believed the twisted truths of the liberal media, the school reassigned Fleming to an administrative job, taking her out of the classroom. She was accused of being a racist, but when real racists push their racist views in the classroom, nothing happens to them. They are not reassigned or taken out of the classroom. They are allowed to continue their racist indoctrination of young impressionable students, but conservative teachers are silenced and punished for expressing their conservative views.

This is another example of ‘selective allowable discrimination’ which only works in one direction.truth-hate-speech

Teacher Complains about Christian Students on Facebook Calling Them ‘Cretins’


waving flagAuthored By Dave Jolly February 21, 2017

We’ve all heard the stories of students and employees who take to social media to rant about teachers, other students, employers and other employees.

In more than one case, students have been suspended and even arrested due to their rants on social media. Employees have faced punishment, demotions and even termination due to their social media rants. In other incidents, social media has censored postings that weren’t in line with the agenda of the social media executives.

One such incident happened last September when one prominent social media site shut down the account of a conservative site with nearly 700,000 likes, because the site posted items that criticized Islam and homosexuality. The same social media site allowed highly negative and derogatory posts against Christians, Jews, Republicans and other conservatives.

In another incident, the father of a two-month old baby son turned to a social media site in a campaign to raise funds to help pay for heart transplant for his infant son. He used a photo and video of his helpless son in the hospital, connected to tubes and monitors. Then he received a notice from the social media site saying that his post was too gory and graphic and evoked a negative response, so they closed his account.

In 2012, Political Media Inc. President Larry Ward posted a meme on same social media site, on behalf of SOS, Special Operations Speaks is an organization comprised mostly of military veterans who want to help other former and active military personnel in many areas. He was informed by the social media site in a short time that they were pulling the meme from the posting. Ward reposted the meme and again it was pulled and he was given a 24-hour suspension from the social media site. He was told that the meme violated site’s Rights and Responsibilities terms. The meme was on behalf of the Navy SEALS which showed an image of Osama bin Laden with the caption – ‘Obama called the SEALs and THEY got bin Laden’. There was also an image of Barrack Obama with the caption – ‘When the SEALs called Obama, THEY GOT DENIED’.

So, what should happen to a Florida teacher who took to her social media page to rant about Christian students in her class?

According to a report:

“The school district is investigating a school teacher for

CP 01

allegedly making disparaging remarks about her students on a closed Facebook page for local atheists.”

“Karen Tucker, a spokeswoman for Bay District Schools, said it is against school policy to criticize students either in person or on an Internet page.”

“In one of the posts, Susan Creamer, a teacher with Merritt Brown Middle School, states some of her middle school students ‘are taking turns either inviting me to church or leaving (anonymously) flyers inviting me to church events. … Every time any child sneezes, they loudly say ‘God Bless You!’ and look in my direction. I have complained twice to the principal — once last month and once today. She has spoken privately to one or two of the little cretins, but it seems to do NO GOOD’.”

 

“‘I am feeling bullied and harassed. It has become intolerable’.”AWWW Poor Baby

cretin FB post

A spokesperson for the school district says that they are investigating the remarks that Creamer made on her Facebook page along with other posts. They also issued the following statement:

‘Teachers are encouraged and trained, to keep clear boundaries between their personal and professional lives to ensure that the classroom remains a neutral and supportive environment,’ the statement reads. ‘This training and related School Board policy includes guidelines for interactions on all social media platforms including, but not limited to, Facebook. We do not condone the use of disparaging comments about our students in any form, on any social media platform or in any school’.”

Since when are public school classrooms neutral? There have been many reports of teachers using the classrooms to brainwash and influence their students. Public schools across the nation are teaching that homosexuality is normal and something they should all experiment with, without letting their parents know. Public schools are also the greatest brainwashing tool used to produce millions of young socialists.

Again, I ask, what should happen to Creamer concerning her derogatory comments and name calling of Christians in her classroom? For one thing, she has no business teaching in a public school with that kind of attitude and animosity toward a specific group of students. No doubt, her atheist biases are most likely seeping into her class lessons with the purpose of persuading her students to believe as she does. Would you want your kids sitting in her classroom?

Teacher Tells Girl Bible Quotes Banned From School


Posted on May 22, 2015Tad Cronn

 Different Free Speech Ideologies

Freedom of expression. It’s not a difficult concept. Basically, every human being has the right to speak his mind without fear of government punishment or penalty. Accepted, reasonable restrictions on speech are generally very loose, like no yelling “fire” in a crowded auditorium and no speech that is genuinely disruptive like standing up and reciting the Communist Manifesto while the teacher is trying to conduct class.

Yet somehow, school officials across this land often seem to forget that the right to freedom of speech, particularly religious speech, does not end at the classroom door. The latest example comes from Somerset Academy near Las Vegas, Nevada, where sixth-grader Mackenzie Fraiser was given an “All About Me” report assignment that was supposed to include an inspirational quote. When Mackenzie wanted to use John 3:16, however, her teacher said that biblical quotations and quotes from the Book of Mormon were forbidden by the school.

The incident might not have even come to light except that some months later, the same teacher made an assignment about self-esteem, and Mackenzie’s parents suggested using a Bible quote, reasoning that the reason Mackenzie has strong self-esteem is that she is made in God’s image. At that point, the sixth-grader spilled the beans about her teacher’s prohibition of things scriptural.

Mackenzie’s father, Tim Fraizer, the pastor of Grace Point Church, fired off an email to his girl’s teacher, certain that there must have been a miscommunication. The reply he received, however, was an email from an assistant principal, Jenyan Martinez, confirming that Mackenzie recalled the incident correctly and that the teacher was, in fact, enforcing school policy. In her response, Martinez suggested that the reason for banning the biblical quote from the original assignment was because, as an oral report, the assignment would give Mackenzie a, quote-unquote, captive audience for her religious beliefs.Liberalism a mental disorder 2

Liberty Institute attorney Jeremy Dys told The Blaze, “When students go to school they do not lose their First Amendment rights. It chilled her speech and, as such, what the school is teaching these kids right now is that it is wrong to reference their faith at school. If they don’t apologize for this mistake … then the lesson that these students will take away is that it is wrong to reference their faith in school.”first-amendment-flag

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the academy said in a statement that it values students’ rights and the incident was under review.

The Mackenzies are asking for the school to apologize and allow their daughter to submit her original assignment with the quote for a grade, which seems very reasonable. Had the situation been inverted, and an atheist student found herself banned by a Christian academy from using, say, a Richard Dawkins quote, the fireworks would be seen far and wide.Leftist determonation to destroy freedom of religion

So why is it considered acceptable by so many government officials to impose on Christians’ rights while asserting a position of de facto atheism? The right to freedom of speech should preclude any policy of selective “diversity.”cause of death freedom combo 2

Teacher gives students a lesson about what freedom really means

Our military veterans have sacrificed more than we can imagine to protect our way of life and our freedom. This isn’t just the big things like keeping us safe from terrorists and invasions from other countries, but the little things that go along with the bigger ones. Like being able to get an education.

Unfortunately, not many of us, especially young people, truly grasp what veterans have done for us, which is what makes the story of what this one teacher did to instruct her students about the true meaning of freedom totally awesome.

Teacher Confiscates Bible from 2nd Grader


http://lastresistance.com/5549/teacher-confiscates-bible-2nd-grader/#HJAw2uhHsjpf3WVo.99

Posted By Dave Jolly on Apr 26, 2014

Why is it that teachers seem to be so uneducated about the trampling of the rights of their students?  If they paid any attention to the media, they would see a plethora of cases where teachers were found to be wrong when they exerted their personal agenda and violated the constitutional rights of students.  They expect students to learn what’s going on in the world around them so why aren’t the teachers practicing what they preach?

This rant is prompted by yet another teacher violating the constitutional and First Amendment rights of a second grade student at Hamilton Elementary School in the Houston suburb of Cypress, Texas.

During a ‘read to myself’ time in class, a second grade girl was reading her favorite book, the Bible.  When the teacher saw her, she took the Bible away from the girl.  The parents of the girl contacted the Liberty Institute instead of contacting the school directly.  They have asked that their identity be protected for fear of retaliation of some sort.

When attorneys with the Liberty Institute contacted the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, school officials informed all district employees that it is okay for students to read their Bibles during independent reading time.

Michael Berry, Senior Counsel with the Liberty Institute said that the school library where the incident took place contains copies of the Bible for students to check out and read, prompting him to ask:

“So if it’s appropriate for their own library, why on Earth would it not be appropriate for their own students?”

One parent who has a child attending the school, Jennifer Muse commented about the incident when she heard the news:

“They are letting them read the Hunger Games, that’s kids killing kids, why can’t she read the Bible.”

However, another parent, obviously a liberal Democrat believes the teacher responded appropriately because of the so-called separation of church and state.  This demonstrates just how much some people have been brainwashed by anti-Christian liberals.

First off there never was a separation of church and state and secondly, the First Amendment gives the student the right to read her Bible on her free time without school or teacher interference.  I suspect that the teacher involved was either ignorant of the law or had her own personal anti-Christian agenda.  Unfortunately, there are many of both kinds of teachers in the public schools and more times than not they are getting away with it.

This is another reason why I believe that every teacher should be required to take a course or courses in constitutional law so that they know what is and isn’t allowed before they ever set foot in a classroom.  Then ignorance would no longer be an excuse and teachers who try to push their own personal agenda on their students can be singled out and dealt with accordingly.

My Own Two Cents

With all the incidents happening in various parts of America, I tend to believe that this was personal, and a private agenda of this teacher. When has it ever been acceptable for any teacher, at any level, to push their own personal agenda onto their students? This is a primary reason what State run schools have become Hitler’s type of schools. The Leftist are following his design of growing a nation of children that are brainwashed to the will of the Self-Appointed; Liberal; Leftist; Marxist; Socialist; Communist; Social-Engineering; radical-Left extremist who are determined to recreate the United States into their twisted, philosophical design.

This is one patriot that will fight them every step of the way.
